Mark Sexton is here to free his soul. The Reno-based musician specializes in modern funk and soul music inspired by the likes of Tower of Power and Stevie Wonder.

The Mark Sexton Band is scheduled to perform a free show at Heavenly Village Saturday evening.

The group recently finished recording a new album at Prairie Sun Recording Studio near Rohnert Park, Calif. The group took a classic approach to recording, using two-inch tape on a reel-to-reel setup, “a recording medium that is now a lost art among contemporary record making,” according to the band’s Facebook page.

The group performs regularly at Lake Tahoe.

“Their musical chemistry began forming in grade school, and as young adults their chops defy their age,” according to the band’s online biography. “Eager to hit the road, the band started touring heavily during high school, often lying about their age to play in dingy bars. In 2014 Mark Sexton Band is gaining recognition on the major festival circuit and beyond, with appearances at Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween Ball and Wanderlust Festival in Tahoe. Armed with a new auxiliary horn section of Dom Lacala and Davis Corl, with keyboardist Ryan Taylor, MSB is blowing the gates wide open on the west coast scene and beyond.”
